Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


Grumble. We’re still waiting for news in pending Team-Kimberlin-Related court cases. Four years ago today, I posted this Statement on Fund Raising related to the first Kimberlin LOLsuit, Kimberlin v. Walker, et al.

* * * * *

Brett Kimberlin is suing a group of bloggers that includes me for a million bucks because we have published truthful information and constitutionally-protected statements of opinion about him. Aaron Walker, one of the bloggers named in the suit, is a lawyer, and he is being sued for offering legal advice to Kimberlin’s victims.

Gentle Reader, can you think of any rights more important than your First Amendment right to free speech or your Sixth Amendment right to legal counsel?

Neither can I.

Kimberlin and his cronies have been engaging in lawfare for years now, and it’s time to put a stop to it. We need to defeat his bogus lawsuit because, if we don’t, there will be no end to his harassment of others. You can help us. Go to BomberSuesBloggers to learn how. [We won the LOLsuit back in 2014, so we’re no longer raising money to fund our defense.] If you decide to donate to the defense fund, you should know that I will never see one cent of the money raised. The proceeds will go to paying the substantial costs of defending the suit. Yes, I am represented by a pro bono lawyer, but there will still be filing fees, deposition costs, etc.

If you want to support this blog directly, hit my Tip Jar or use the Amazon shopping link on the Home page.

UPDATE—Stacy McCain points out that if we don’t defeat this suit, it’s possible that Kimberlin might sue you.

As if to prove Stacy’s point about Kimberlin’s eagerness to engage in lawfare, The Dread Pro-Se Kimberlin filed his Kimberlin v. The Universe, et al. RICO Madness LOLsuit the next day after my post was published.

Team Kimberlin Post of the Day


There’s still no news from the pending Team-Kimberlin-releated court cases, so here’s another recycle post. This one’s from four years ago today and deals with a silly YouTube video Bill Schmalfeldt posted. The original post was titled Hogeman: Internet Astronomer. The links to the Cabin Boy’s™ original material are broken because he has sent them down the memory hole.

* * * * *

Come on in out of the corn starch, order yourself a pizza to go (hold the anchovies), and enjoy this worked example of discrediting Bill Schmalfeldt by quoting Bill Schmalfeldt.

[broken link to YouTube]

(H/T, Frankie) Note: If your browser has trouble with the audio on the YouTube file, click [broken link to SoundCloud].

You know, I probably shouldn’t have done this post. It will wind up increasing the exposure of that clip more than tenfold.

LibrauraniaBTW, Res judicata will be one of the principles that Justice will use when weighing in her scales the competing claims about the Cabin Boy’s motion to modify the peace order issued against him. Libra(The Scales) is one of the twelve constellations of the Zodiac.

The sun begins its transit of Libra on 16 October. Perhaps Bill Schmalfeldt should carefully check his horoscope before he comes to court that day.

UPDATE—The makers of Luciners Castor Oil Flakes and Fantastic Cigarettes, Luciners for the smile of Beauty, Fantastics for the smile of success, have brought you the transcribed Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye Hogeman: Internet Astronomer. Tune in again next week, same time, same station, when Nick Danger Hogeman meets the Arab The Fat Man.

UPDATE 2—Well, I looks as if the Cabin Boy no longer wishes to share his wit with us.

UPDATE 3—Schmalfeldt’s intro to his Hogeman: Internet Astronomer piece contained a statement that it was in the vein of such Firesign Theatre works as Nick Danger: Third Eye. That’s the reason for all of the allusions to Nick Danger in this post. Those of you who wish to hear more of the Schmalfeldt’s audio drama are stuck waiting for the Cabin Boy or someone like him.

* * * * *

After four years, it may be time for the Cabin Boy™ to peel open a can of Bear Whiz beer from off his top shelf and contemplate the fact that everything he knows is wrong.

UPDATE—Yep, everything he knows is wrong.How I came to know the correct spelling is a story for which the world is not yet prepared, but I will note that Mrs. Hoge worked for The Firesign Theatre for a brief period while we lived in Southern California. Most of the unofficial Nick Danger scripts out on the Interwebz misspell the brand of the cereal Loosners, but a part of the real joke in the script is the use of Luciner, a real surname. It’s a pun.

The Cabin Boy’s™ talent for transcription doesn’t seem to be any better than Dr. Flotsam’s.
